Bosch sgs5002gb dishwasher not draining

Hi, I have had the Bosch SGS5002gb/01 for about 10 years it has worked perfectly until a few days ago when it would not drain and it left about 2 inches of water in the bottom of the unit,above the filter. I emptied the water using a cup, restarted it had flooded I leaned the dishwasher back to reset the pump. I ran it empty a couple of times without detergent and it worked fine. I loaded the washer and today tried it again and again it had not drained properly. Any ideas?

Check drain hose first.

If you do not find any blockage, then you will need to access the pump, remove pump hose and look for blockage in there.

If there is no blockage at all, then either the water level switch, a faulty pump, a wiring problem, or a faulty timer board can be cause the machine not draining.

SOURCE: my bosch excell dishwasher won't drain it stops

A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.

Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.

Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.

Why is my Bosch SHE4AM15UC dishwashwer not heating water not sanitizing? How do I fix this problem?


The problem could be a failed heating element. If replacement of the control panel results in no change, the element could be the problem.

Hello and welcome to Fixya.

It "smells" ( just kidding ) like you might have a problem with the way your drain hose is connected by your description.

It is crucial that your Bosch dishwasher have a siphon break or "hi-loop" installed in the drainage between the dishwasher and where it enter's your homes plumbing.

If it does not you can try different cleaners until the cows come home with little effect because the odor is coming from the drain line itself.

Was this unit installed by yourself or someone you know ? Or was it installed by a plumber/professional installer.

In the end it actually makes little difference, I'm just curious. I see professional installers as well as plumbers fail to include this crucial feature over and over.

Let me know. I'll watch for your post. If you are unclear as to what I'm referring to, check your installation guide that comes with all Bosch dishwasher's.

If you do not have any instructions regarding the proper drain/install I can email you a copy, but I would need your email address.

Good luck.
